“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
These 10 words are life-altering.
Think about this assurance from our Savior Jesus Christ. This idea is not one that is easy for us to grasp because in our world everything and everyone changes. This is one of the reasons that it is hard to trust or be assured of anything in this world. However, there is one who does not change–Jesus Christ.
Yesterday, we looked at the fact that we can believe the promises of God because they are anchored in his character. Yet, this assurance would not be sure if His character ever changed. We can rest assured today that Jesus Christ does not change. God is the same God now as He was before the foundation of the world and He will continue to remain the same for all eternity. This means that if God promises His people something, we can rest in God reassurances. We can rest in the fact that God does not change like a shifting shadow and that all of God’s promises are yes and Amen in the person of Jesus Christ.
Today remember that God never changes, and He is faithful to keep His promises.
Father, help me to trust you and take you at your word, help me to rest and take solace in the fact that you are never changing. Amen.
